Dog-loving celebrities and sports personalities are giving their support to Puppy Farm Awareness Day which takes place this year on 19th September 2009.
This special day will help to educate the millions of people in the UK who are considering buying a puppy but are unsure who to contact and what to do next about purchasing one.
Located in remote areas of our British countryside, Puppy Farms mass-produce puppies which are usually removed from their mothers too early, transported around the country to dealers, and then sold from the internet, pet shops, free newspapers or even motorway service stations.
As a result these poor puppies are bought lacking socializing skills and commonly suffer from fatal health problems which can include pneumonia, parvovirus, as well as dangerous infestations of fleas and worms, often requiring hundreds of pounds of veterinary or behavioural treatment to fix.
Breeding bitches are usually kept in cages or small pens, rarely see daylight or touch grass, and are mated on every heat; just fed enough to keep them producing pups, with little or no veterinary care at all.
The World’s Biggest Puppy Party invites all puppy owners to take part in a fun event whilst raising national awareness about such an important and serious animal welfare issue.
This unique day will also feature a funky doggy shopping area, Scruffts cross-breed heats, assistance dog displays as well as an all-day celebrity-judged fun dog show open to dogs of all ages, with soapstars from EastEnders, Corrie and The Bill, TV Presenters, models including Jo-Emma Larvin and Liz Fuller, as well as ex-World Champion boxer Michael Watson MBE judging ‘Best Boxer Dog’!
The World’s Biggest Puppy Party is a non-profit dog-show held at Brighton Racecourse, Freshfield Road, Brighton, on 19th September 2009.
Admission is a donation to be split between three charities: Hope Rescue, Sussex Pet Rescue and Pro Dogs Direct who rescue and rehabilitate ex-breeding bitches and stud-dogs.
